What a great fountain and nice to look at the nighttime

I was there for a wedding formals shoot. It was HOT, but the spray off the fountain was enough to keep me cooler. I really wanted to jump in the fountain!

It was beautiful, fun, and just right for couples and families! I disliked the construction that was going on downtown!

My husband and I wanted to see downtown Jacksonville. The only issue here is parking... good luck is all I have to say about that. It is fun to visit this fountain and see the sites.

I'm a photographer by trade, and this is where I get fantastic shots of both the city and river. There's always something going on and a great addition to the Jax area.

As a photographer, many of my clients want to be photographed at friendship fountain. Many suitors have proposed there, couples take wedding photos there and it overlooks the St. John's river. Not much for smaller children to do, but a nice place to stop off and enjoy the view.
